A large, incomplete hexagonal Pyrrhotite "book" makes up most of the mass of this hand specimen. It shows considerable damage, but I believe that much of this occurred prior to mining, as much of the surface seems to be slightly healed. Otherwise, the Pyrrhotite has excellent form, with well-defined edges and clean faces that possess a slightly dull metallic luster. It has the classic deep golden-brown coloration of this material. Attached to the crystal is a small mass of galena that has crystalline tendencies, but is quite malformed. A small portion of the Pyrrhotite's surface area is covered by a druse of tiny quartz crystals that have a milky-white coloration.
